Whether you have DIY Inkie Oxides (aka DIY Distress Oxide Inks) or if you have Tim Holtz Distress Oxides or Distress Oxides Spray you can use them to watercolor. Watercoloring with Distress Oxides is such an easy and relaxing process. Today I’ll teach you how to watercolor backgrounds for cards with my easy DIY Oxide Paint.

Aka Inkie Oxides

Hands down the easiest way to watercolor, especially watercoloring with distress oxides is to emboss an image first. Then you will want to watercolor inside the lines, try it and see how easy it is. It honestly doesn’t get much easier than this. Starting with the Festive Foliage Background Stamp in my Stamparatus. This way I can restamp as many times as I needed to get a good crisp impression with white embossing powder. Once I had a good impression on my regular white cardstock (I use 80lb Accent) I proceeded to heat emboss my image.

Having the perfect impression to paint on, I poured a bit of the desired DIY Inkie Oxide colors onto my Waffle Flower Media Mat. The Tim Holtz Palettes are perfect and I use them all the time. Because I can just put the palette away when I’m done and not waste any product. I showed you this in my DIY Distress Oxide Sprays Tutorial.

The Painting…

With all my colors selected (Listed in the supply list below), I started painting. Applying one color first in preparation for the next color. However, I paid close attention as not to allow the ink to settle into the paper before I added my next color. Sometimes it was a darker hue of the previous color, or sometimes it was a completely different color. Either way, they were colors that play well together and left me with such a beautiful variation on my painted piece.

Enjoy the process of my painting in the video below. In the finishing stages, I used some Tim Holtz Distress Resist Spray to create shiny water droplets (that dry clear) to preserve the color beneath them. Spritzing some pink, green, and blue here and there. I was able to add a lot of color without covering my watercoloring.
